snake

I posted that last picture of Porter this afternoon because it just fit my mood perfectly today. What I didn't know is that at about the same time I posted it my sweet dog was bit by a poisonous snake while he was in the woods with Eddie. We rushed him to the ER and he is on antihistamines, antibiotics, and pain meds. Poor guy. I feel awful for him. I hope he makes a 100% recovery but only time will tell. I have no idea what kind of snake it was, but it was either a copperhead, rattler, or cottonmouth. Bastard.

Thanks to Carey for her much needed advice. I called her on Easter Sunday because I know she's the expert and she was nice enough to take the time to help on her day off.
